I just wanted to come forward and say that I must speak a different language than the average, nay most all except for Acaeum sellers, eBay seller. I say that because my definition of "Fair to Good"  is way off from what I buy. Does anyone know what "Fair to Good" should mean when dealing with magazines? Once again no feedback from the seller even after they have told me they received payment and shipped the item should have warned me that I was in for a good screwing again.

Unless the item is very rare and I do not own it already, or there is absolutely undisputible photographic proof ptherwise, fair to good to me means "move onto the next auction". :)

normally (even i make the odd mistake), i am quite harsh on my condition. i just do poor, good, very good, excellent and mint.

most used stuff tends to be VG imo. i grade outer and inner and a box if present.

if the cover is very worn/torn/missing bits, it is G at best, depending on what the problem is.

with mags, i do the same thing. i note the grading as condition, but if something is missing, i make it clear, so you are under to false illusion as to what youre getting.

like i said, i make the odd mistake cos i aint attentive enough, but generally it has stood me in good stead.

I have been hanging out on Dragonsfoot over the last month or so(mostly lurking  :wink:  ), but there were 2 links that I absolutely had to share that were posted. Both absoultely made me lagugh my a$$ off.

The 1st one is about all the different types of internet forum flame warriors (This one almost made me pi$$ myself on several occasions reading through):

Flame Warriors Home

and the 2nd one will be appreciated by anyone who games online:

Sorry, but I just had to share. :)

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Speaking of artists, as we did earlier, it appears this is Foglio's work.  At least it looks like it:

Untitled Document

and

Untitled Document

(two different comics, the later ones all in color).

Girl Genius is definitely Foglio, who is still very active (although perhaps not that much in gaming).

Studio Foglio is the best place to see what is going on with Phil:

dont really know a lot about these things, but i was watching it and was contemplating a bid at the end, til i then saw what it went for !!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... RK:MEWA:IT

knowing david collects these like i eat hot dinners, i wasnt surprised to see his name crop up at the last - quite surprised someone else was willing to shell out that much money as well though!!!

was it worth it do you think?

Seems a bit high to me, considering the condition.  Looks like a good bit of staple rust on the M&M, in addition to the box damage.

It would seem to me that it may be either the 4th print Greyhawk that David was after or perhaps it may have been one of the oddball sets that David and Tyson are trying to nail down to specific printings.

Indeed! And I missed by 31 pence! :lol:

I hate UK OD&D prices. And that last 5A was even worse, pushing £100. :roll:

Erf, I smothered the bidding then forgot to come back with a snipe :(
Anyone else miss Frank's EPT @ $75 who might've been intending to do likewise?

Nice win at that price...
